Spiral Playhouse

A family in Venice asked me if I could build a play structure for their children. Inspired by my Waldorf background, I created a spiral form that would keep the children

mesmerized. The ground area features a secret sand play area and the bent wood steps lead to a round house in the trees surrounded by rope and unusual hiding places.

The house is based on 12 round poles . To protect them against moisture, I burned the lower part that is in the ground and created a coal patina. The roof  is a flower blossom.

The wood is FSC Certified Pine, Plywood and Cedar.
